Hello Donapeter!

I love "Final Distance" by Utada Hikaru. Although Japanese is definitely not a European language, the song may be of use, since it is so deep and beautiful. By the way, Japanese are good at mixing their language with English, really.
This is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m49UMzAvWCI&feature=related

Enjoy!

I could recommend "La Vida Es Una flor" by Loona, though I only understand half of it.

The Spice Girls have some strange lyrics in "Viva forever" (at least I don ´t understand them...), but please don ´t judge my taste in music from that. Wink

Hi, dear,
I think it was a song in the Romanian competition for Eurovision song contest in 2007 that fits your requests and kids might know it(a little)..Locomondo - Liubi Liubi I love you
